Product Description

Review

To be blunt, those of you who have watched the show, re-watched the DVDs, and played through the first three chapters in this saga will buy this game no matter what I have to say about it. I don't blame you for doing so. If I had put in the 200-plus hours required to get all there is to get out of "The World's" world, I would do exactly the same – you owe it to yourselves to finish the task and find out what happens.

But, as is surely no surprise to anyone, there isn't anything in this final chapter that will convince those who have held out thus far to start up the journey. Surely, the pace of this game is quicker and more to the point than the earlier ones, but it still has the same problems as volumes one through three. Namely, camera controls that weren't acceptable with the first release, sub-par graphics, and dialogue that's more stilted than an episode of All My Children with "the part of Mercedes will be played by…" people filling in every one of the roles.

I want to give this game bonus points for being an interesting experiment. Personally, I don't think that it was entirely successful, but it was one that was worth trying. Hopefully, down the line, someone else can give us a similarly high-concept RPG with a little more meat on its bones.

Concept:
Finish the four-part saga started in February by tying up all the loose plot threads

Graphics:
Same as in earlier entries, which in my opinion, means that they aren't that great

Sound:
Has no one in this game gone through puberty? The voice acting makes everyone sound like they're eight years old

Playability:
Same icky camera, same somewhat uncomfortable menu structure

Entertainment:
For those who have kept up, this game is a given

Replay:
Moderately Low

Rated: 7.5 out of 10
Editor: Lisa Mason
Issue: February 2004

2nd Opinion:
Inventive dialogue. Intuitive gameplay. Acceptable graphics. The fourth and final installment in the Dot Hack series has none of these things. But, if you've played the first three, you aren't going to wise up and call it quits now, so while you're enjoying the thrilling conclusion, I'll be over here, doing fun things.

Rated: 6.5 out of 10

4.0 out of 5 stars Riding Off Into The Virtual Sunset March 2, 2004
For dedicated dot hackers, the easiest way to describe the fourth and last chapter of this game is 'more or the same.' Once more Kite adventures into the many fields and dungeons of 'The World' seeking loot, experience, and trying to safe the world (the real world) from a virus gone out of control. This time, though, all the loose threads are drawn together, answers are provided, and the glow of a new day restores the shine to the gaming world.
If you are new to the game, you are likely to find Quarantine a bit difficult to play and confusing to understand. While it can be done, I think a very large part of the series' charm is the slow, game-by-game, building of character and story. With the earlier games now available at discounted prices the best strategy is to start at the beginning and work forward. Do not, however, try to play the games one right after another. Spread out, their similarity doesn't interfere with enjoyment. Taken all at once, it is quite possible to overdose on grunties.
If you have been following the series than expect no great surprises. Well, there are one or two, but for the most part everything is a natural progression from the previous games. While the plot undertakes some interesting twists, gameplay is pretty much a matter of bigger and badder. If you have been religiously leveling up in prior episodes then Quarantine will feel a bit too easy. If you have been getting through by the skin of your teeth then there will be some tough fights ahead.
I felt that Quarantine was a little too short, and not as spectacular as I expected. There is provision for playing after the game is complete, including an item challenge, and some familiar characters will suddenly become available. Unfortunately quarantine features a smaller set of monsters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Game, Horrible Price. June 17, 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This take is the final part in the first .hack video game series, and personally, one of my favorites. But sadly, all of them are way over priced!! I was pretty disappointed and wait with feeble hope that someone will either sell one at a cheaper price or will change their price. Otherwise it is an excellent game and worth my time in my young teenage life. Hopefully it would be worth your time too if you wish to pay the awful prices. ^w^"

3.0 out of 5 stars The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly January 27, 2004
By A Customer
This review isn't just specificallyabout Vol4, but about the whole series...
I have enjoyed the Hack series of games quite a bit, and though I think the cost should have better reflected the fact that there were 4 short games rather than 1 (or 2) longer games, that the overall experience was ok.
I would recommend picking up the series (preferably used to help with the cost) for the experience of playing the whole series, and hope that a true Multiplayer sequel is in the works, as that would be an interesting game as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good series of games July 5, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I really like the fact that you can use your save data from the previous game and that the story is flowing along a similar path as the Anime Series. The DVD disk that comes with these show the real world events which is another good perspective and a lot better than the Anime's shaded few second shots of the real world.
Still need to finish the game. I seem to have a problem finding a place that doesn't have one really hard monster to kill that takes 20 min to fight, and I have to kill 20 of them to level up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just a little getting used to November 26, 2004
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
A lot of people really miss the point of this game so I'm going to lay it out for you.

It's a simulation of a mass-multiplayer online RPG. You meet several players along the way and the game tries to make sure you interact with them as often as possible. However the main characters in the story turn out to be Balmung, Blackrose, Wiseman, and of course Kite, and as such when you're in situations where the story line is progressing they are the characters that you'll probably want to (or have to in some cases) select for your party. A lot of the dry spots in the story is to progress your relationships with other characters.

For experienced gamers the .hack//saga should provide little difficulty. The characters are brilliantly designed, my only complaint is that you don't really get a lot of substance in each individual game. It's fun to progress the story, but before you know it the game is over, which is why I eagerly awaited this installment in the saga. I was pleased to see the story come together the way that it did, and the DVD's that coincide with the game are well done. It's not nearly as hack and slash as some would make it out to be, there is a bit of strategy in the game, several opposing elements, several enemies with both physical and magical tolerance that require some sort of strategy to defeating them. Another lacking quality in the game is the variety of enemies is low, you end up fighting the same enemies over and over again in each level, the lack of variety at each weapon shop is also frustrating, however the trading system and the variety of weapons you find on the field along with the leveling them up with the help of special dieties known as "grandpa" and "monsieur" make up for that.

The story is frighteningly progressive and cutting edge.
